    So is there a way?

    My dad thinks that he can install iXtreme 1.5 but i think we can not...

    So we need a way to identify my X360 mod as Soft or Chip WITHOUT opening the case...

    Many thx

    Merry XMASS

    It doesn't matter , your dad is right , you can install ixtreme 1.5. Even if it was chipped , it would make no difference , it wouldn't stop you flashing ixtreme to the drive.

    As for telling without opening it , hmm , if you have to patch with something like nme associator or similar , then chip. If you don't then it's flashed. Not 100% accurate though , as if you had one of the old dual firmware mods , then it would act like flashed , while technically still being a chip.

    Doesn't matter though , can install ixtreme anyway.

    You have to open the 360 and connect the drive to the pc to install ixtreme 1.5. As for what it does , it's just an updated version of the hacked firmware ,support added for the lite-on drive + other enhancements, it won't unban you. Although now I think about it , while an nme or similar wouldn't stop you flashing the drive , they might not play nice together once it's done. Ixtreme is better option anyway , so if it is a chip , best to get rid and go flash anyway.
